Rider-Aware is coming to Happy Dog Ranch, the 2nd Thursday of each month, and you are invited to join in the fun!
Dear Rider-Aware Club Members,
NEW INFO FOR YOU TO BE AWARE OF!
We’re very thankful for Happy Dog Ranch as this wonderful organization is allowing us to meet at their location for our monthly meetings! Their address is 7811 W. Titan Rd., Littleton 80125.
We are moving our monthly date to meet the second Thursday of each month. Thursdays seem to be a good night to meet as seen by the great turnout at the last Rider-Aware Club meeting. This month’s date will be Thursday, March 9th and the speaker is HDR's Trainer and Barn Manager Gray Graves. We will gather in the cabin - park by the barn, and walk down the drive and turn right; the cabin is at the end of the drive.
The time will still be 6:00 to 8:30. Bring an appetizer, snack, something to drink (beer, wine, etc. is fine). Each month we plan to have a guest speaker to expand our awareness and bring value to the relationship we have with our horses, ourselves and one another.
We want to be a blessing to Happy Dog Ranch, so we are asking each one to bring a donation of any amount each month as an appreciation for the use of their facility. Happy Dog Ranch is a 501C3 Not-for-Profit organization so your donations are tax deductible. If you write a check, your check is your receipt. If you offer cash, you will need to keep track yourself.
As you arrive, make a name tag and please fill out a Happy Dog Ranch waiver. There will be an official “Donation Boot” for your contribution. Grab some food and enjoy making some new friends. At 6:55 we will introduce our speaker. After discussion and Q&A we will wrap up around 8:15 so we can clean up and mingle a bit more.
Cindy Jones and Sandy Corrigan look forward to seeing you at Happy Dog Ranch! Feel free to invite friends.
John's sister Kathi Fiedler, all the way up in Alaska, has put together an online Facebook auction that will run until March 22. She has some great items up for bid including leather purses, sled dog tours, and original artwork. Click here to join it. Kathi is still taking donations, so contact our Program Coordinator Hillary with a description of the item or service you want to donate, its value, photos, and starting minimum bid (if needed).
Also, volunteer Amanda Laramore's sister-in-law/professional photographer Trish Barker visited the ranch a couple of weeks ago, and all the photos she took are now available for purchase through her webgallery with 50% of the proceeds coming back to the ranch. There are animal closeups galore and photos of your HDR favorites including Fritze, Wilbur, Embarr, and Iris the Wonder Horse. Also check out Trish's blog for more information.
And if you live in the Denver Metro area and love to play Bunco, volunteer Lisa Axelson will be hosting a HDR Bunco Fundraiser on Saturday, April 22, for $20 a player. Prizes include products from doTerra, Posh, and Tastefully Simple. Contact Lisa if you want to sign up!!
